Are you sure it's a vanilla kernel? is a valid kernel
(released on August 16th, it appears), but 2.6.20-16 would be a
distribution kernel.  It's possible that the fix was included in, as that kernel didn't exist yet when I was testing, and it
wouldn't be surprising if the fix were included in a distribution
kernel.  But looking at the changelogs, I don't see the fix in any
kernel except 2.6.23-rc3-git8, which is part of 2.6.23-rc4.
